hopscotch (9816) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Draft... Pours dark and crimson with a small, bubbly, off-white head. Decent retention. Smells chocolaty, woody and acidic. Medium to full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and gentle carbonation. Equally bitter and acidic. A touch nutty and buttery. Not as sweet or chocolaty as I expected. Lengthy, tangy, mildly bitter finish.

nimbleprop (5329) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 19, 2009
Bottle shared at the DC Local tasting. Opaque, mahogany amber with a cloudy, white head. It does not look like an imperial stout. Aroma is fruity, woody, tart. Flavor is all fruits, apples, pears. Not what I expected.

Pour many thanks to Dr. Bill at the SD strong ale fest. Pours a brown with off-white head. Roasted malt, chocolate, fruit, hay, tart, and a touch of oak. Interesting beer, which I did enjoy. Medium body.

Bottle@Home. Very fruity aroma, red & black berries, lactic. Opaque colour, fine beige head, good lace. Sweet, light sourish, light bitter, fruity (berries), vanilla, red wine. Bit thin but burning in your throat. Flavourful and certainly not an average beer.

Hoping I have the right beer here, my notes say "Alvinne Sour Podge Cherry"
Tap (Craft Beer Co., RBESG2011 Saturday)
Dark red with a surprisingly full spongy head. Promisingly sharp aroma of dark fruits. Sharp, slightly sour in the taste, but a good roast holds it afloat. Not so keen in sour notes in stouts, so this does well to survive that test. Beautiful finish, remarkably light grains for a beer so dark. Good breadiness. Covers the alcohol well too. All round solid beer in a sub-style that’s hard to impress me with.

rlgk (11927) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2012
75 cl bottle from Etre Gourmet. Deep dark red/brown beer with a beige head. Woody vinous aroma, chocolate, red currant, licorice, vanilla, wild strawberries, grapes, roasted, some milk chocolate, sweetish. Fruity woody flavor, vanilla, dry oak, wild strawberries, vinous, chocolate, vanilla, grapes, some viol. Maybe lacking a little body, but otherwise very interesting.
